The facts ma'am, just the facts... or is it fax :)

Deadlines to Apply: March 9 (Documentary) / April 6 (Narrative)

IFP’s Independent Filmmaker Labs are a year-long fellowship supporting independent filmmakers through the completion, marketing, and distribution of their first features.

Lab submission is open to all first-time documentary and narrative feature directors with films in post-production.

Structured in three week-long components held over the year, the Labs offer personalized attention on post-production, audience building, and distribution strategies in the digital age, followed by continued support from IFP as the project premieres in the marketplace.

Recent Lab Project alumni now in theaters include Dee Rees’ Pariah (Focus Features), Alrick Brown’s Kinyarwanda (AFFRM), and Victoria Mahoney’s Yelling to the Sky (MPI), being released this spring.

Premieres at 2012 festivals have included An Oversimplification of Her Beauty (Sundance), Welcome to Pine Hill (Slamdance, Grand Jury Award), Una Noche (Berlin), and The Light in Her Eyes and Smokin’ Fish (IDFA 2011) - with more Lab alumni set for upcoming festivals and broadcast.

To apply or for more information, visit http://www.ifp.org/programs/labs.

Good luck!
